Post upper abdominal pain Q??

Hi everyone! I posted a while back about having upper right rib pain (discomfort is more like it). Well since I posted, I have got 4 different opinions and I still am not satisfied!
1st doc said it could be referred pain form a c setion (2+ yrs ago)
2nd doc said my bloodwork (i think Liver enzymes?) looked fine
3rg doc said (after feeling my rib area) that he thought it was gerd
4th doc said that the area I said was bothering me is where my ribs hinge and that being pregnant that it was my hormone levels. She felt around in the liver area and said nothing so I assumed all is fine there.
Now I have had a lot of losses thanks to cancer and of course that is whats going through my mind! I just lost my father in law 2 weeks ago with cancer all over!
They claim that with me pregnant that there isnt much they can do so that too worries me! One doctor even said "If it were anything like cancer, you would be having ALOT more problems." But I dont, just the rib area and sometimes my stomach area beneath my breastbone, feels maybe like an ulcer. I have suggested blood tests for h. pylori but no one will do it!
Any input would be appreciated!
Thanks! ~Lisa
